lots of sewing ahead....

My wool came in today!! My nice UPS man brought it to my desk at work. I love getting prizes……I have all my things delivered to work because I’m never home…It is prettier than I expected! My question to you all is…..Do I treat it? Wash it? Dry Clean it? or just cut it as is?? I’ve decided on this pattern….it’s fairly uncomplicated….

BUT, before I get to my coat project I have lots of alterations to do….all hems.

I did finally get around to taking a pic of my corduroy jacket I finished last month. This was the easiest pattern I’ve done in a long time….no alterations except the shoulders, I cut into the shoulder about 1”…AND the alteration I make on everything I neck to waist measurement, I take it up about 1 1/2"..
but if you are looking for a quick, fitted jacket without lining, this is the one. I plan on making more of these…great jackets to wear to work.


Gotta git off here......

I dry clean good wool for the first time at the dry cleaners, then most of the time I put it in the dryer using the home dry cleaning kit. That is, unless I get the wool garment particularly dirty (like my black pea coat that's sitting in my closet).
